Representative Jason Brodeur touted his vote to help pass a bill eliminating sanctuary cities in Florida, posting on Facebook, “Today I helped pass a bill eliminating sanctuary cities from our state. I will continue to fight for the safety and protection of our Florida communities.”
The bill, HB 9, was passed through the House of Representatives Friday by a vote of 71-35 after overcoming a number of attempted amendments.
It wasn’t the only bill Representative Brodeur moved forward. He is also sponsoring a bill designed to protect genetic and other private information.
“My bill preventing insurance companies from using genetic information passed through committee today,” Broduer announced. “This legislation will go a long way in protecting consumers from the unfair review of their private information!”
On Friday, Brodeur also appeared before an education committee to move forward a bill expanding the after school and summer programs offered by the Central Florida YMCA.
Brodeur argued in committee that the YMCA had a “long track record of success,” including eighteen years serving students in Central Florida. The bill would provide appropriations to expand the program to additional counties in Central Florida.
